    The first pre-season game is October 7th. For those who want to enter the beer and wings contest you have until the end of that game. If you are out of town I'll send you a 20 - 30 dollar gift card to a place that sells beer and wings through the wonders of the internet

    ALSO remember to edit your existing post. If you do an all new one I will take the most recent.

    As for things that may be subjective.

    1.) An ankle roll will be judged by RaptorsMR saying he rolled it or if it is mentioned during press time after a game.

    2.) Every rotation player has expectations. Well I agree this is subjective, since it's my 20 bucks, I'll make the call...perhaps after some minor debate.

    well, so far we have multiple people predicting Toronto will get a 7th seed or better with a sub-.500 record, something that has only happened once in the Eastern Conference in the past decade, so it's not like we don't have our fair share of wacky
    So who's wacky now?

    Damn I was (happily) wrong with my T Ross one, but I'll be honest I partly went with it cause it was a funny nickname.

    Nice call. It's interesting to look back at expectations going into the season.

    I had totally forgot some of my predictions. Here are the closest to being right for me:

    8.) Pick one rotation player that breaks out (guy 1 through 9 on the team)
    Lowry

    9.) Pick one rotation player who falls completely short of expectations
    Gay

    That's 'cause there was a lot of negativity surrounding Ross after summer league.

    Yeah, I'll admit I was not a Ross fan at the beginning of the season. Good for him for taking the leap, very pleasant surprise.
